It’s a beautiful day for it to be Halloween and to keep the spooky theme going I’m going to share with you the five moments that I have found to be the scariest in Star Wars. Enjoy!
5. The Mynock on the Window
I think all Star Wars fans can agree that this scene is easily one of the creepiest scenes in Star Wars. Leia’s scream-of-terror reaction says as much. The Mynocks are disgusting creatures (as you can see from this picture) and so it wasn’t a hard decision to add this to this spooktacular list.
4. Evil Yoda
Okay, if you haven’t watched The Clone Wars then you will have no idea what this is but let me tell you…it’s creepy. Yoda, through a trio of episodes, finds himself on a spiritual journey after being visited by Qui-Gon’s ghost. During that journey, he finds himself face to face with this evil side. It’s an ultra creepy moment that made me realize how glad I am that Yoda never turned to the dark side.
3. Bor Gullet
Bor Gullet, the horrifically terrifying creature that Saw Gerrera used to extract information from his captives. Ever since I saw this thing for the first time in the movie theaters I was freaked out.
Seeing Bodhi watch in horror as this…thing neared him and then began wrapping its tentacles around him is so frighteningly disturbing that it still creeps me out a bit every time I watch it. *shudder*
2. The Brain Invaders
Okay. I’m not a fan of worms and I don’t like gross stuff. So to see wormlike parasites worm their way into the ears of these Clone troopers to control them in The Clone Wars was both horrifying and disgusting at the same time.
1. Spidery Darth Maul
When I learned that Darth Maul had survived his gruesome defeat in The Phantom Menace and was in The Clone Wars series I couldn’t wait to see him. What had happened to him? Where was he? And how could he possibly still be alive? These were the questions I kept asking myself.
Well, when the episode finally heralding Darth Maul’s return arrived I watched in utter horror as he emerged from the shadows atop a robotic spider body. It was so extremely disturbing that I was so relieved when he was rid of those horrifying legs. Ugh. It was the worst.
So yeah, these, to me, are the five creepiest moments in Star Wars. What are the moments that have scared you the most? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. Happy Halloween everyone!
